What people are saying about Aix-en-Provence
Just a little glitch at the beginning...there were 6 of us...until we understood that the booking companies were all different (Get Your Guide, Viator, etc) and apparently all sub contracted to the same organization in Marseille. It all worked out, but our tour was not in French, as arranged. We agreed to take the tour in English, as the other 4 people did not speak French. But, Get Your Guide should take care with this, as if we were not bilingual, it could have been uncomfortable. As we were able to take the tour in English, all went well for everyone. The guide was helpful and well-informed and we had a very fulfilling day.
Our guide LEO was most knowledgeable, very passionate about the region, and provided the right amount of freedom to experience maximum enjoyment of the tour. Leo, a native to Marseille, described each site in such a way that we gained far more insight than any tour we have taken in the past 12 years.
The tour had too many churches and was about two hours too long. It was quite tiring, particularly in the summer heat, though Cassis is definitely worth seeing. Although the tour was sold on the promise of food tasting, there was only one tasting of biscuits, which seemed a bit inadequate.
We had a fantastic tour with Greg! He was very knowledgeable, happy, funny- and a great driver. He explained the history of all the towns we visited and he also pointed out good shopping and eating spots. He clearly loves the area and enjoys sharing it with visitors!!
He was knowledgeable, prompt and took good care of us. We did not realise that the drive on the highway would be so long. Aix was interesting but not amazing. Driving on smaller rural roads would have been more interesting. Thankyou
